Samsung galaxy ace 3

Samsung's lower midrange champion, the Galaxy Ace line got a third generation entrant this year with the fittingly named Galaxy Ace 3. It is not a huge upgrade over its predecessor, however, as is the habit with Samsung's annual updates, and the phone mainly got a 0.2" screen smack and a tad faster processor.


Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 smart phone with 4-inch 480x800 display powered by 1.2GHz processor alongside 1GB RAM and 5-megapixel rear camera. Ace 3 runs the newest Android 4.2 and is spattered with the newest Touch Wiz Nature UX interface from Samsung.

The phone has become slightly taller compared to the Ace 2, to accommodate the larger screen, but the side bezel has shrunk and the width has been kept almost identical, so the phone is very easy to hold and operate with one hand as well.


Molded in the tried and true plump plastic traditions of Samsung, the Ace 3 has not gotten much prettier in its third iteration than the previous two. We have the LTE version of the phone for review, which is slightly thicker and heavier than the 9.8mm 3G version. The typical soapy shape with tapered sides and metal-like rim around the front panel do look decent, though, and the dark blue patterned plastic on the back is a nice change from Samsung's glossy black covers of former times.


Galaxy Ace 3 has 4 LCD screens, which sports 480x800 pixels of resolution, ringing in a decent for this class 233ppi pixel density. The screen sports good color representation and very nice viewing angles.

Volume rocker

The volume rocker on the left and the power lock key at the right are thin, but not uncomfortably so, and are very easy to feel and press, with good tactile feedback, as is the large physical home key underneath the display. The 3.5mm headset jack is on the top and micro USB port on the bottom. The navigation buttons are below the display. It has 5-megapixel shooter on the back.

Storage and battery

Galaxy Ace 3 also has the 4 GB of internal storage memory, 1500 mah and battery blue tooth 4.0 ram is still a mystery.


Its weight is 120 g.


The panel's brightness is not very high, and its reflectivity is about average, meaning that outside under direct sunlight you might have trouble telling what's going on, even at maximum luminance.
